Trenchless Utility Installation

Freedom Utility Placement installs underground utility lines such as conduits, pipes, wires & cables using horizontal directional drilling, a trenchless installation method that does not require an open trench. Horizontal directional drilling, or HDD, allows utility lines to be placed underneath natural and man-made obstacles that cannot be crossed using traditional open-trench methods.
